and if they bring it back they're getting whacked with tax code. we need friendly tax environment for corporations to spend the $1.2 trillion they're sitting on. gregg: if we go over the cliff that is not tax friendly. matt mccall, president of pns financial group. good to see you, matt. heather: we're seeing a bright spot in the u.s. economy. qord according to national association of realtors sales of new home were highest since april of 2010. a homebuyer tax credit caused then a spike in sales. it measures the number of americans who signed contracts to buy homes. the report also points to higher sales of previously occupied homes in the coming months. gregg: former president george h.w. bush remains in a houston hospital where he continues to recover from a persistent fever and a cough. a family spokesman just giving us some, a new details, an update on his condition. mike tobin is live outside methodist hospital with the latest. mike? >> reporter: the latest, gregg, the latest release we got included the phrase, continues to improve in relation to the former president's condition. the staff ar
calls and there is more resistant to sharing the news to be which is understandable in an environment where there are perceived threats but most of the polls, most of us have a pretty good methodology for how to incorporate cell phone use. but even with that, the cost goes up when you introduce cellphone into your survey. it is a more expensive process. one of the rules established -- a phenomenal thing they did was they cannot be automatically dialed so that makes the call centers operate more slowly. we reach a lot of folks on the cellphone. i think moving forward, a lot of the questions turn on whether or how we can incorporate some form of on-line interview in into the data collection process. there are a lot of folks who did mayor entirely and there are a lot of folks trying to do that. the biggest challenges being representative. it is not the case that every american is online. not every american is sophisticated enough to navigate and to a public opinion interview. one of the most common questions i get is why don't you use people's e-mail address? there is no place to sample
, the current environment. >> there will be a lot of interest to do something immediately. senator feinstein said that she will reintroduce the assault weapons ban, the first day that congress is back in session in january. commission is a good idea provided it has bipartisan membership and gun control supporters and gun control opponents on it to look at this as a comprehensive issue. we have to be careful moving too quickly. yet, we have to have a comprehensive approach on the commission. i commend the president doing the commission. this could be way to find consensus about useful steps to take. >> joe, what are the key factors? >> there is a demand for something to be done. every one of these crisis, we come back and talk about it for a week. then nothing happens. the commission is a good idea. i agree with karl pleatly. the makeup of the commission, that really, really needs gun advocates and gun control advocates from the industry, i think, would be a good idea. to sort of start to deal with this in a meaningful way. there are a number of issues. >> another question is how the nra fact
-fragile system is one in which mistakes are small and bring long-term benefits. we want to be in that environment and environment that ben filths of mistakes. >> i hear what you're saying. shifting the debt burden from the federal government and states and federal government is a better position to carry debt. states have these constitutional balance budget amendments and bail out the states, isn't it? >> this is exactly the problem we have is that the government finds it easy to borrow and runaway deficit. let me explain the big thing. a project in the uk where we have good data, 100 million pounds, uk project, 30% more cost overruns than 5 million project. small is beautiful and more efficient than you think. so having the government, centralized one bureaucrat make a mistake, okay, massive consequences. it looks okay until they make a mistake. it's a lot bigger. plus, another thing. there's no skin in the game on a part of bureaucrats. bureaucrat makes a decision. that's the central thing. federalize the system and i was asked how to make the financial industry better. force people to have ski
down dramatically. and we've let our business environment get less and less efficient. we've let the cost of doing business rise up. we've got -- we're losing many, many more investment decisions and business activities to other countries than we're getting back. and yet, the political debate including the one we're having this morning is really not about the really important things. it's not about skills. it's not about the fundamental structure of reforms we need to make in our budget, our tax system. we're kind of -- we've gotten ourselves into a kind of a short-term day-to-day dialogue. we're not really addressing the real issues. >> a couple things going back to jpmorgan. first of all, we learned time and time that no man, no human being is smarter than the markets. not anybody. that's number one. and number two, with regard to the banks and the size of the bank, we got rid of glass steegle which allowed investment banking to combine with commercial banking because we needed to be big to complete globally. what has it brought us? i would say not so much. is it really true th
is a target rich environment. they are trying define us as something as we are not. mormonism issue was front and center early on. think the romney campaign did a good job of trying to downplay that. certain members were nervous about bringing it up but the social media types and bloggers were constantly trying to make an issue and picked up by some. >> jon: what about the conventions when mitt romney got nominated, when barack obama got renominated, was it fair? >> when i look at the republican convention, the coverage, there was an effort to fear but i think they fell off the knowledge. it was clint eastwood and new famous empty chair. suddenly somehow a hollywood actor who was brought in because he had done the ad during the superbowl that seemed to be pro obama, but here he is endorsing mitt romney that was bigger than anything that mitt romney did. that is the most memorable event from a convention that i believe not only did mitt romney stand up but also paul ryan and several hispanics did an excellent job to present a conservative reason to oust president obama. >> nobody remembers the
to lay better eggs in this environment? >> no, but you'll be encouraged and inspired. >> reporter: fancy chickens do lay colored eggs, green and red. i tried one. it's really good. really good. i would definitely pay $100,000 for that egg. dan harris, abc news, new york. >> give it some gas, dan. >> the jet pack looks cool. the hen house, come on, now. every day. that looks like a good gift because that's something if you have that kind of money you can get into, you know what i mean? >> until you crash it. >> i don't have that kind of money. merry christmas, everybody. >>> this morning on "world news now," trouble times two. the west coast gets slammed again by powerful storms at the worst of times. >>> and with the tremendous snowfall and powerful wind swept rain, mother nature is not spending christmas and other parts of the country christmas cheer. it's monday, december 4. >> from abc news, this is "world news now." >>> and good monday morning, on this christmas eve. good to have brandy back in the house. it's been good. we had a little eggnog. >> we're making it a festive holiday. >
the environment for that. i think the voters did, and that is as it should be. >> the last couple questions -- we will come back to this side. >> my question is, in the days following the election there was a fair amount of coverage about the divisiveness of the obama for america ground game -- i was wondering, how you need you think that model was for this campaign and candidate, and if this might be the new model, to be replicated -- how is that going to play out in 2016, especially where both candidates will have a contested primary and maybe not the opportunity to set up offices in iowa for a year and a half out from the election? >> the field has always been important in elections. there was a time when the field meant political organizations did field work. chicago is renowned for fieldwork, only it was done by precinct captains for a long time. fieldwork is important. it is not a substitute -- i liken it to a football game. the message has to get the ball close enough to the goal lines so the field can win the game. you cannot simply win a race with field. but what has happened is the marr
in this environment. what is more realistic with what you think congress is-- >> very quick. >> what's more realistic, partial fix of the tax cuts and you'll get some kind of increase in taxes you'll have some kind of cut in spending, mostly on nonmedicare and non-social security programs. >> well, mostly, but there's only four programs that count anymore, health care, social security, defense, interest on the national debt. if you eliminated everything else, we still wouldn't have a balanced budget. david: david wyss, thank you very much. the n.r.a.'s wayne lapierre says we should put armed guards in schools. we talk to a former d.e.a. agent who has thought this out coming up after the break. [ malennouncer ] it's tt time of year again. ti for citi price rewind. because your daughter really wants that pink castlehing. and you realldon't want to pay more than you have to. only citi price rewind automatically searches for the lowest price. and if it finde, you get refunded the difference. just use your citi card and register your purchase online. have a super sparkly day! ok.

discusses the political environment as we go into 2013 and the tone of american politics today. "washington journal" live at 7:00 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> the tapings system was top secret. seems the only people who knew for certain where my father, his secretary, and the secret service agent who installed it. that was until president nixon made white house taping famous and infamous, and other presidential recording systems were revealed. against the backdrop of watergate, the background of secret taping can seem problematic, but this is a unique and invaluable historic resources. on these tapes, history unfolds in real time in the most dramatic possible way. we hear the tense confrontations of the civil rights movements and the life or death decisions being made during the cuban missile crisis. >> caroline kennedy joined in on a discussion on the 1962 recordings of the late president in the oval office. tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. eastern on c-span2. >> there were a number of attributes and memorial services last week for senator daniel inouye of hawaii. his remains have laid in state
of these are fights where the president has largely been absent. take guns or the environment, for example. and let's not forget about the rest of the world where any number of foreign policy entanglements could overwhelm the most carefully laid plans. let's bring in dana milbank and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart also of the "washington post" to help me sort out how does a man get it done in the second term? dana, you know, they say that the second term a president really has about 18 months to get anything done and after that you're pretty much a lame duck. now, of all the things i just listed, what do you think he should and what do you think he will try to tackle first? >> well, karen, first of all, i don't think he needs to surrender to the idea that he only has that 18-month period. it's not without precedent to achieve things later in the term. so, first of all, it's not necessarily such a narrow window. the other thing is assuming we have to do something with the fiscal cliff here, but even once that's done and presume lbl awhat we're looking at now is more of a smaller short-term fix,
and we are all products of our environment. the valley of death, the korengal valley was called that because of the amount of contact we were taking, the amount of firefights. small arms fire, rpgs, rockets, whatever it may be. that tour for us was a 15-month tour, which was -- that's pretty long for -- >> that's a long time. >> -- for some young people. and we did what we were trained to do. we engaged the populous. we're there to hopefully make their lives better. help them out, find better ways to help them do the same thing they've been doing. and when i wrote the book, i wrote the book to one describe the valley, but, two, to describe the people around me. so often i'm congratulated or patted on the back or thanked. i've never done anything in the military alone. that's one the military does really great, is build a team and keep the team together. and kind of writing the book, i was able to put my buddies' names in print and highlight the actions that they have done, because there's so many great things that men and women in uniform do every single day and we don't hear ab
to lay better eggs in this environment? >> no, but you as the farmer will be encouraged and inspired. >> reporter: fancy chickens do lay colored eggs, green and red. i tried one. it's really good. really good. i would definitely pay $100,000 for that egg. dan harris, abc news, new york. >> give it some gas, dan. give it some gas. >> the jet pack looks cool. we can all agree on that. the hen house, come on, now. that's how i get home from work every day. just float down central park west and i'm back home just like that. that looks like a good gift because that's something if you have that kind of money you can get into, you know what i mean? >> until you crash it. >> i don't have that kind of money. merry christmas, everybody. don't have that kind of money. merry christmas, everybody.
in that environment is to have it both ways. my view is there is too much classified information. my view is there is too much secrecy in general, and we should probably we think a lot of how we do it. i am inclined to want to see diplomats like susan rice to be as candid as possible with the public. there is another view on that, that we spell too many secrets. -- spill too many secrets. host: this goes back to the 9/11 commission and how intelligence is shared amongst agencies. guest: to me, it is one of these fascinating things that always comes up. whenever there is a catastrophe like 9/11 or the u.s.s. cole, everybody always says they did not share the information. one part of the government had one piece and they did not connect the dots. in the intelligence business, you're getting information from very technical sources or wiretaps or satellites that we do not want other people to know about. people in the business want to usually keep the stuff they collect in as small a group responsible in order to avoid the other big problem of moles and so forth. if you look at wikileaks, thi
with the environment, being off the grid, so there is no cell phone service here. and really, really appreciating your surroundings. the bay of fire in australia is in the most stunning, most unspoiled area of tazmania in the northwest coast. this is a place that really you have to be committed to going to, because part of the process of getting there is actually hiking for two days on these beautiful white sand dunes, and you hike -- it's not a lot of hiking, but you are definitely out there, and being a little bit adventurous. this is a place, again, that's off the grid. you're going to have no tvs, you're going to be pumping the water for your own showers. the reason you go there and the payoff, the incredible wildlife. you want to see wombats, wallabees, kangaroos, this is the place to go. hicks island is the brain child of an architect who was obsessed with how beautiful the surroundings were and wanted to celebrate that. so he built these incredible modern structures that are made of concrete, and the rooms only have three sides. that means one side is completely open to the elements. the brand-
that we begin to clean up our environment better, and in order to make sure that we're not sending men and women overseas in harm's way for foreign oil. [applause] >> thank you. >> there's so much to talk about. we are running just a little bit long. if he could indulge me, i have two last questions that i think you're terrific questions. -- are terrific questions. the first, the truth is that we're one of the few democracies in the world that has not had a team of president. why and when will we? [laughter] and could she be sitting among us today? [laughter] kelly, would you like to start? [laughter] >> i think i will be campaigning for a patent daily, my daughter, -- kate daly, for president. but absolutely, i think we will have a woman president. i really think it will certainly be in my lifetime if not soon. >> maybe 2016 when hillary runs. >> maybe. [laughter] [applause] >> did you have a thought on that, carol? >> i certainly do. [laughter] run, hillary, run. [laughter] >> i certainly know it will happen soon. the electorate is ready. i think the 2012 election is a real watershe
, from the larger political environment to do something. will this afternoon's meeting have an impact? too soon to say, but it's a step that's intended to show they're working at it. willie. >> kelly o'donnell on capitol hill. thank you. we're joined now by republican senator john thune of south dakota and democratic senator chuck schumer of new york. gentlemen, good morning. by my count, we're less than 90 hours away now from the new year's eve deadline. senator thune, let me start with you. what do you and republicans need from democrats to get a deal done? >> well, what we would like to see, willie, is first off something that deals with spending. we believe this isn't a revenue issue. this is a spending issue. that ought to be a part of any solution. secondly, we ought to focus on jobs and the economy. anything that is done ought to be focused on what can we do to get the economy expanding, create jobs. when people are working, they're paying more taxes. the government is generating more revenue. that makes all these problems smaller by comparison. jobs and growth ought to be a gu
're all in a group in the roosevelt room or in the cabinet room. it is a more casual environment. they're sitting probably on couches or chairs near each other. but the problem, don, is that if the president tries to sweeten the deal to woo more republican votes, then he risks losing lots of democratic votes and vice versa. this is really an issue about the fundamental differences between the two parties, the role of government in american life, that's why it is so hard to get to a deal. >> how dramatic. who would think talking about money and fiscal issues would garner so much drama, jessica. >> reporter: well, it is washington. and it is a lot at stake. it is about people's taxes, and, you know, the social safety net in america. it is the difference between democrats and republicans. >> yeah. we're going to talk more about the money now. thank you, jessica yellin. appreciate it. to new york now, joining us rick neuman, chief business correspondent for "u.s. news & world report." i want to ask you about the tax increase if there is no deal and tax rates rise, when would workers begin
, it's saving money and the environment as well. everyone's a winner with this one, heather. heather: a win/win on both sides. thank you so much, dominic. >>> as the nation barrels towards the so-called fiscal cliff, new report that is the president has a back-up plan. we are live in hawaii next on what that might look like. gregg: and mother nature throwing a huge wrench into the holiday travel rush. the latest check on the weather conditions and travel delays next. heather: can one of the survivors of the sandy hook elementary school shooting tragedy speaks out. how the school principal and two other school employees saved her life. >> the three of them were shot, and they yelled back, shooter, stay put. they saved my life and the life of four others who were at that meeting. gregg: another fox news alert. this new development in the fight over the fiscal crisis as lawmakers head home for the holidays. there are reports president obama is scaling back his hope for a sweeping budget bargain with republicans. welcome to a brand new hour of "america live". i'm gregg jarrett. heather:
was a generation ago. it was a very different political environment. i mean, as we saw last week, house republicans are not really inclined to compromise on their core principles, which are keeping taxes low and the second amendment. so i think eleanor's right. the only way you can maybe get something passed is to pair it with, you know, other options that they would agree to. they'd say, okay, we're going to get more, you know, mental health resources to prevent this from happening again. and okay maybe we'll agree to some limits on guns. you know, related to that, i would point out that the nra's latest proposal would cost $7 billion according to my back of the envelope calculations. >> you mean to put police officers in every school? >> yeah. you've got 100,000 public schools. right now you have about a third of them that have armed security guards of one kind or another. so that means you've got two-thirds, 70,000, costs about $100,000 to pay a salary and benefits for a police officer so, that comes out to $7 billion. to put that in perspective, the fbi's annual budget is $8 billion. now, i don
environment. host: an editorial responding to and preparing for natural disasters is one of government's most important functions. it's as lawmakers should provide immediate relief without having to worry about demanding that spending to cut elsewhere. jan in springfield, mass., on the line for democrats. caller: 5 would like to say in florida in 2004 when they had all of the hurricanes, state farm insurance pulled out of the state and refused to ensure homes. people that have car insurance with state farm wanted to cancel their insurance. we found out the weight state farm is judging each state -- we found out state farm is judging each state. there are states where they are not making a profit so they are not insuring. global warming and new storms, the insurance companies need to look at their policies and unite them as americans. please quit referring to us as "ordinary" and referred to us as the backbone of the nation. guest: i was born in massachusetts, so i certainly feel you are part of the backbone of the nation. there is not reformed insurance policy coverage in this bill. a big pro
